Charley Crockett recently stopped by NPR's Washington DC offices to perform five tracks for his Tiny Desk Concert session.

Amidst his fan-favourite charismatic cowboy stories and traditional-leaning ballads, Crockett also played a brand new unreleased track, ‘The Death of Bill Bailey’.

He introduced his Tiny Desk Concert with a playful anecdote about the first time he visited Washington DC, and how that trip was under significantly differently circumstances, “Well, first time I came to Washington DC was to answer to the US government”.

The audience loved his quip, and it played perfectly into Crockett's state-hopping, outlaw image.

After performing ‘The Man From Waco’, the Texas crooner offered a high-energy rendition of an older track, ‘Are We Lonesome Yet’.

He followed this up with ‘Welcome to Hard Times’, before treating viewers to a performance of ‘The Death of Bill Bailey’.

As he outlined during his set, the song is inspired by a classic track he heard while travelling and busking around the US.

‘The Death of Bill Bailey’ captures the storytelling magic that Charley Crockett has become known for, and that pervaded his most recent album, The Man From Waco.

Fans are hoping his inclusion of the unreleased track in his Tiny Desk setlist is a hint that a new record could be on the way.

Charley Crockett has built a reputation for his unparalleled rate of musical output, with the country songsmith having released six full-length projects since 2020.

Alongside multi-instrumentalist Kullen Fox - who, according to Crockett, “has his own fan-club” - the ‘I'm Just A Clown’ hitmaker also performed ‘Odessa’, which was recently given an accompanying music video.
